Texans currently spend several billion dollars a year on gaming in neighboring states such as Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma. We want to keep that money in Texas – to fund schools that educate the next generation of leaders. To create new well-paying jobs to sustain Texas families. To bring resorts that attract international and out of state tourism, the largest conventions, the biggest names in the entertainment world, and destination shopping to Texas that will cascade benefits throughout our economy and revitalize communities across the Lone Star State when we need it the most.
We’re the Texas Destination Resort Alliance, and we’re fighting to bring the world-class gaming, entertainment, and restaurants Texans already enjoy in other states into our own backyards, creating billions in new revenue for our state to continue to make Texas the greatest state to live, work, and raise a family.
What We’re Fighting For
Our coalition is working to gather statewide support for an amendment to the Texas Constitution to allow for new luxury, destination resorts in Dallas-Fort Worth, San Antonio, Houston, and Austin. We’re also advocating for casino options at current racing tracks throughout Texas and new gaming projects on federally-recognized Native American reservations.
Each destination will bring an unprecedented investment into Texas communities and jumpstart our economy by creating jobs, and creating new tourism destinations; and provide critical funding for Texas public schools and other vital services for Texans.
